Graphics47.4% is a reasonable 3D score (RTX 2060S = 100%). This GPU can handle the majority of recent games but it will struggle with resolutions greater than 1080p at ultra detail levels. (Note: general computing tasks don't require 3D graphics)
Boot Drive34% is low SSD score. With a better SSD this system will boot faster, make applications more responsive and reduce IO wait times.
